Grilled Corn on the Cob recipe

Disclaimer: Untested. I am in the process of planning a camping trip and am looking for recipes that are do-able for 7- and 8-year-olds.

Also, personal pet peeve: the subtitles “Ingredients” and “Directions” in a recipe. Wasted space. …and if you need someone to point out that a list of ingredients is a list of ingredients then maybe you’re in over your head. #SteppingOffSoapbox

Adapted from here.

4 ears fresh corn, in their husks
Butter (or an herb butter) for serving

Soak ears in water for 15-20 minutes (or more). Remove outer layers of husks. Peel down remaining layers and remove most of silk. Replace layers of husk, tie at top with removed outer layer of husk.

Place the corn in their husks on the hot grill. Cover. Turn the corn occasionally, until the husks are charred on all sides, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove corn from grill. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Serve hot, with butter.

Packing list:
big pot for soaking corn
pot holders/mitts for handling hot corn
silicone basting brush for buttering
